Does the RSPCA have animal welfare standards for farmed fish?

The RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme currently covers the production of eggs, chicken, turkey, pork and dairy veal.  Farmed Atlantic salmon was added to the Scheme in April 2016. Find more information here.

In the absence of RSPCA standards for other fish species, consumers are encouraged to contact their favourite seafood companies and ask them about their standards of fish welfare. In addition, consumers are encouraged to source fish from fisheries or aquaculture operations that comply with certification schemes that require sustainable practices.
